Manchester United have sacked Louis van Gaal just two days after the Dutchman led them to victory over Crystal Palace in the FA Cup final.
The Dutchman has been made to pay for United’s poor Premier League campaign and will be replaced by former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.
Van Gaal’s Dutch coaching staff – including United assistant coach Albert Stuivenberg and goalkeeper coach Frans Hoek – have also left the club with immediate effect.
The United executive vice-chairman informed Van Gaal he will no longer continue as manager as they look to appoint Mourinho as his successor.
Van Gaal arrived at Carrington at around 8.45am.
Van Gaal’s entire coaching staff were also present as they learned their fate.
Mourinho expects to have more talks on Tuesday ahead of signing a three-year deal with Rui Faria and Silvino Louro the goalkeeping coach expected to follow.
Ryan Giggs’ future at United is up in the air despite Mourinho’s wish to keep the Welshman at the club.
